In addition to our guided tours, we offer accompanying workshops expanding on the subject of the tour. The programmes last 1 hour each and cost € 35 + 1€ for materials. Classes that have been divided for tours can be reunited for workshops.

Please note that for educational reasons our workshops can only be booked together with a guided tour. They are ideal for schools, after-school clubs, holiday camps, youth groups and even kindergartens. Every child can take what they made home with them at the end of the workshop.

All tours are also available in the following languages: English, French, Spanish, Italian, Arabic and Hungarian; please book well in advance and make sure you have alternate dates, as availability depends on the schedules of our foreign-language guides. Our hieroglyph workshop (“A Letter to the King”) has worksheets with the Egyptian alphabetical signs available in German, English and French; however, it can be booked for any children familiar with the Latin alphabet and numerals, as our educators will be on-hand to help. The same is true for the worksheet for “Stroke, Loop, Tadpole”.

Themed workshops

„Giving Life – Magical Figures“

Figures in female shape, often reduced to their basic attributes, served to grant wishes for fertility and new life; at the same time they were thought to repel hostile powers and protect their owner from them. In this workshop, we make our own “paddle doll” based on the Egyptian originals.

„The Gold of Meroe“
